So literally I was stopped on the street today by a woman who concurred with the statement displayed on my tank. She exclaimed, “hunny, you are absolutely right. Fashion does fade and style is eternal.” I giggled and responded with “Amen!” The world is full of great fashion quotes. It amazes me there isn’t a collection comprised of infamous Carrie Bradshaw quotes alone! This little gem was inspired by none other than YSL. It was either this or the top that proclaimed something along the lines of shopping is cheaper than seeing a shrink. Which is totally true by the way.
It’s rare that I commit to graphic tees (Wildfox and Lauren Moschi being the only exception to this rule.) Wearing a graphic tee is a lot of responsibility! First you have to agree with the saying. And especially after today it has to be worthy of a stranger stopping to agree. Although, graphic tees are a fun way for a fashion blogger to break away from the overly used fashion quotes edited in various filters, that make even the most generic Instagram users seem like they have a valid and educated opinion about life in the fashion world. Sadly, I’ve already seen tees that exclaim “But first, lemme take a selfie.” That is one quote that you will not see this fashion blogger displaying an any article of clothing any time soon. Like most pieces that hang in my closet, I prefer to keep my sayings classic and timeless.
So it’s no secret I’m obsessed with trends. I’m a self diagnosed “shopaholic” but is there such a thing as being a fashion-a-holic? I should look look in to this.
One of the greatest things I stumbled upon today was this picture of Ashley Tisdale wearing this “Celfie” tee. Obviously a play on Celine. One of the biggest trends I’ve noticed lately is plaster a fashion house typically affiliated with top quality material on basic tees, tanks and yes even canvas! Considering Chanel made a name for herself by being one of the first to master the use of jersey, I really don’t think she minds. Karl Langerfield on the other hand, his eyes are probably rolling behind his dark shades.
Naturally I immediately immersed myself in to an intense google search only to be led to another blogger/ designer, Sincerely Jules. And with my luck this ridiculously cute tee that is only $35 aka practically free, is sold out. Ugh. I guess I’ll just have to wait till the stock is replenished.
This “Celfie” tee is not the first nor the last graphic tee we’ve seen recently. Interpretations of the double C logo have been gracing tanks and tees in small boutiques for some time now. And who can forget the “Ain’t Laurent without the Yves” shirt.
Believe it or not this shirt is only $10 on ebay. I have my reservations about $10 shirts though…cheap cotton, yikes!
Ugh, I guess if I can’t have this one I’ll settle for the Dimepiece “Too Cool Shirt.” Why settle for one designer when you can have them all?
